    GRO no match with info from Ancestry


    I have tried finding a death for William Ebsworth. There are a couple on Ancestry so thought I'd try and work out which it could be using the GRO (to show the age at death). However, there is one that has details (volume/page) but doesn't show up on GRO when I search - any ideas?

    Does it appear on Freebmd??

    If it does, use that information to try to find it on GRO Index

    Researching Cadd, Schofield, Cottrell in Lancashire, Buckinghamshire; Taylor, Park in Westmorland; Hayhurst in Yorkshire, Westmorland, Lancashire; Hughes, Roberts in Wales.


      if you post the info on here, can have a look for you.

      Also interested in Proctor, Woodruff


        Could be mistranscribed as EPsworth?

        if you post the details then we could all look?
        They're coming to take me away haha hee hee..........

        .......I find dead people


          I assume the death is before 1866 as all the ones after that have the age on free BMD. From 1838 to 1858 there are 17 deaths though, so without at least an area I have no idea which two you mean on Ancestry.

            Sorry, have been busy!
            William's details are b.1765 I would assume in Berkshire (haven't found his birth/christening either). Married his wife Elizabeth Simms in Chilton 1792. My ancestor, his son John Ebsworth was b.1803, West Challow. I have a fair few I'm struggling with so any help appreciated



              Is the one you can't find on the GRO from 1852? If so then this looks like it - it's on FreeBMD as Ebsworth, and the age is broadly right:

              EHSWORTH, WILLIAM aged 85
              GRO Reference: 1852 D Quarter in WANTAGE Volume 02C Page 188


                If this is the right man then the only one I can find in the 1851 census is this one:

                Chapelry of West Challow, Wantage, Berkshire
                William Ebsworth 83 Ag Lab born Ashbury, Berkshire
                Sarah 55 Wife born West Challow
                Jane 27 Daur Dress Maker born West Challow

                William Ebsworth married Sarah Hawkins 12 Nov 1822 West Challow

                Them in 1841 at West Challow?
                William Ebsworth 70
                Sarah 40
                Martha 30
                Jane 15
                Thomas 14

                All born in County except Jane who is marked as Scotland, Ireland or Foreign Parts
